  • Azimio leaders are converging at the KICC for a conference with the coalition party's top brass.

    Reports have intimated that President Uhuru Kenyatta would be meeting the Azimio leaders who have won the just concluded elections.

    Azimio's Presidential candidate Raila Odinga will also be present at the meeting but the agenda wasn't included in the media alert sent.

    The leaders who will be attending the inaugural conference' at Azimio Election Day Media Centre, in KICC were required to dress in the Azimio colours which are blue.

    "We were asked to come in the attire for Azimio. We haven't been told any message just that we should report here at KICC," Sirisia MP-Elect John Waluke stated.

    Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka one of the key points on the agenda was for the top brass to meet the elected leaders and get to know each other.

    The KICC has been a hive of activities since Tuesday as officials allied to the coalition set final touches to prepare for the announcement of presidential results.

    A red carpet was rolled on Thursday afternoon at the entrance of the Tsavo ballroom, which is expected to act as a VIP holding area and the media centre.

    Footage seen by Kenyans.co.ke, showed that invited guests will be treated to a red carpet affair from the parking lot to the entrance and into the hall.

    Along the alley are the Kenyan flag and roll-up banners with pictures of Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua.

    The hall is subdivided into four areas including a sitting lounge, a VIP section, and an entertainment and catering section.

    The Azimio team has a separate VIP section where Raila will meet top-ranking officials of the coalition party and members of his political inner circle. The event will be broadcast live.

    Raila's team has booked a separate hall where he is expected to address them and the nation in the event the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chair, Wafula Chebukati, announces him as president-elect.
